What is Diabetic Foot?
Diabetics are at a very high risk to develop ulcers and infections that lead to foot amputations. In fact, the risk for a diabetic to develop ulcers is as high as 25%, when compared to an average occurrence of ~2%. Most diabetics develop peripheral arterial disease (PAD) that reduces blood circulation to the feet. Moreover, diabetics develop nerve disease also called diabetic neuropathy thereby reducing sensation in the feet. This amplifies the problem as it make it easy for diabetics to develop ulcers and infections, which when left untreated for some time may lead to amputation.
How does BeatO help you?
We bring healthcare at home by conducting diabetic foot exam which includes tests varying from Vibration Perception Threshold (VPT), 10-g monofilaments to Dermatological and Musculoskeletal assessment and reflexes. The tests are conducted by best in class technicians who are well trained and the results of the diabetic neuropathy and foot exam are reviewed within 24 hours.
What is included?
Vibration Perception Threshold (VPT) : Diabetic neuropathy (diabetic foot) is the most common cause for foot ulceration. The VPT test is considered as a gold standard for diagnosis of diabetic foot (peripheral neuropathy).
10-g monofilaments:Screening for loss of sensation with the 10-g monofilament is in widespread use across the world. Nylon monofilaments are built in a way that when a 10-g force is applied, it buckles. If the patient does not detect this pressure, it indicates loss of large-fiber nerve function indicating early symptoms.
Dermatological and Musculoskeletal assessment:Physical inspection for any presence of callus, fungal infections, ulceration besides foot deformities.
Reflex: Absence of ankle reflexes is associated with possibility of ulceration. Ankle reflexes are tested with a tendon hammer.
